After an on-the-job injury, you may feel pressure to get back to work as quickly as possible. Between medical bills and lost wages, the financial strain can put you and your family in a tough position. However, we encourage you to not go back to work until you’ve fully recovered and have been cleared by your doctor. Here are 3 few reasons why:

You could re-injure yourself. Going back to work before your body has had all the time it needs to heal can lead to additional injuries and a longer recovery.

You put others at risk. If you work in a physically demanding job, your inability to perform at your best could put others at your workplace at risk.

You jeopardize your claim. Your workers’ compensation claim should cover your full recovery, as well as lost wages that result from your inability to work. By going back to work too early, you’re telling your employer and the insurance company that you are no longer injured, making it very hard to secure funds to cover future medical treatment.

If you’ve been injured on the job, your first priority should be to get better. That can be hard with the financial concerns that stem from not being able to work. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can help get you maximum compensation for your injury, so you can focus fully on healing. If you’ve been injured on the job, give us a call for a free evaluation.

    I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!

    After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.

    I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
